Malabar is a coastal suburb situated around Long Bay. Malabar is mostly residential, but with large plots of land devoted to the Randwick Golf Course,and parks. A small group of shops is located at Prince Edward Street, close to the intersection with Anzac Parade.
You can be completely private, but we are close by for any information or assistance you may need. Check-in and out times are flexible depending on whether guests are coming and going on same day.
With regard to the short-term let, we mainly want to rent it our for period of mid May to early August or as close as possible to the period stated.
Please note although there is an extra single bed (extra person $30) which can be made up in the living area, the apartment is not suitable for children under 5 due to stairs, and balcony access.
Apartment is fully self-contained. If guests want to use the bbq they are most welcome. Help yourselves to variety of herbs and fruit from the garden
Interaction with Guests
We live downstairs. Guests are welcome to knock on the interconnected at any time for information or a chat. Or guests can be completely private as they have their own entrance.
The neighbourhood is quiet as house is in a residential street. As the bay is quite small, there are never large crowds using the beach. The golf couse & club is very picturesque being on the ocean front. The ocean pool is very popular with guests and with ourselves as it is 5 minutes walk so no need to take anything but your towel and sunscreen.
Nearest drinking venues are the RSL club which also provides reasonably priced and varied meals. The golf club is more expensive but still good value.
Buses within 5 minute walk. No on site parking but plenty of free street parking. Taxi from the airport takes about 20 mins and costs $40-$50
Other Things to Note
If you are a golfer, apparently this is golfer heaven!
We are an easygoing couple and we can say the same for our guests. We expect you would treat the apartment as if you were in your own home and also smoking inside the apartment,
Helen greeted us on our arrival. She was friendly, welcoming and helpful with local information on transport and dining. We only met Sean very briefly on our departure.
The apartment is light, bright, clean and spacious for a couple. It is well equipped and has lovely views. There were some provisions which was useful. The bed is extremely comfortable.
Travel to the CBD is an easy 40 minutes by bus. Meals at the RSL are excellent value and the Golf Club offers a well priced Menu with exceptional views for free.
Malabar Beach is an attractive place but it is a high density living area. There is quite a lot of noise during the day such as traffic, barking dogs and other people. The pigeons on the roof were unexpected! Fortunately the noise subsides at night so a good sleep is possible.
We recommend the apartment to a couple wanting to stay outside the Sydney CBD. It is well priced and a pleasant area.
Thanks Helen and Sean
Helen was very welcoming, showed me the space, and assured me she was available for any questions. The photos of the place do not do it justice, both the apartment and the view were even better than shown. The neighborhood is quiet, residential, with locals in the nearby village. Malabar Beach is the same, the whole place is peaceful. Ten minutes away is the touristy Maroubra Beach, with many shops and amenities.
Helen was very welcoming upon my arrival! She showed me around the place and assured me she would be available if I needed anything. The photos of this space do not do it justice, the place was spotless, and even lovelier that pictured. The view of the bay on the balcony is beautiful, including the stars at night. The neighborhood is residential, quiet, and filled with locals. Mauruba Beach, only a ten minute ride away, is busy, touristy, and filled with shops. Everything you could want for a getaway.
Helen's place was gorgeous. The view was breathtaking. The apartment was spotless and the bed was comfortable. The check in was easy and Helen was extremely accommodating. There is ample parking on the street and the beach is a quick walk down the street. This was the perfect place to land after traveling from Canada. I would easily stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
Helen went out of her way to help make us welcome and helped ensure our stay was a pleasant one despite Sydney's recently wet weather. A quiet, comfortable bedroom and fully self contained and pristine kitchen made for a very enjoyable experience. Thanks again. Brendan
Our stay at Helen's was wonderful. It is an absolute lovely apartment with a gorgeous view. We were only able to stay for 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. It's very peaceful and Malabar is a nice suburb.
Helen was great, communication was clear, she showed us the apartment and then gave us our privacy in the apartment with it's own entrance.
